Cook It Raw is the one of the most highly lauded culinary gatherings in the world. Founder Alessandro Porcelli thinks of Cook It Raw as a collaboration among chefs bringing their ingredients to the most primal form of existence and to appreciate the art of each element. It is a great honor for a chef to be invited to this yearly conference held in a different location every year, and it all began in one of the trendiest food cities, Copenhagen. René Redzepi of Noma describes the event as, “boy scouts going to camp. Learning to tie new knots and see new places in the world and then seeing how we can bring back what we learnt and use it in our own kitchens.” Porcelli set out to instill the primal food instincts of hunting and gathering back into some of the worlds most renowned culinary artists such as: Albert Adria, Alex Atala, Pascal Barbot, Massimo Bottura, David Chang, and René Redzepi. This stunning 208 page book documents this event through Denmark, Lapland, Italy, and Japan. The gathering leads up to one finale gala where the chefs show off their dishes created solely from ingredients in the surrounding land, sourced, gathered, and cooked by each master chef. This is not just a boys club Slovenian chef Ana Ros was the first female to attend the event in Poland we know there will be a lot more to come.”

Yumiko Utsu

Disturbating kitsch food photography

Grotesque yet utterly intriguing, Japanese photographer Yumiko Utsu’s work enthralls the viewer with playful constructions of fruit, dismembered sea creatures, vegetables and insects set against colorful tapestries. Her bizarre and humourous photo-art, revolving around food and animals, falls into the narrow genre of disturbing kitsch that could only come out of Japan.

Utsu lives and works in Tokyo and most recently her work was included in the group show Out of Focus: Photography at the Saatchi Gallery in London.

Tsuyoshi Ozawa

Portraits of women with vegetable weapons

Since 2001, Japanese photographer Tsuyoshi Ozawa has been traveling around the world photographing young women holding guns fashioned mainly from vegetables. As part of the process, the ingredients are chosen by Ozawa’s models and make up a hot-pot dish native to their country. After the portrait is completed, the “gun” is disassembled and Ozawa and his model share a meal made up of its parts.

Vegetable Weapon, a collaborative project promoting peace, will be on display at Misa Shin Gallery in Tokyo from September 21-November 2, 2012.
